Riding on the momentum of a well received EP Released in 2018, Royal Orphan is currently working on their first full length release. Their sound has been described as 80s era Queensryche and Somewhere in Time -era Iron Maiden with gutsy aggressive riffs and real-world lyrics within a singer/songwriter approach to traditional heavy metal. Their debut EP was well received by critics both online and in printed publications such as Rock Hard (8 out of 10 rating!!) and Deaf Forever (8.5 out of 10!!!!). Originally intended as a studio only project, the EP was recorded by two longtime friends and metal fans Brendan Kelly on vocals, guitar and bass with drummer Joey Migz. Bass player Dan Kelleher completes Royal Orphan as a trio, which is rare for the genre but makes for a classic powerful sound! The band’s mantra; WELCOME TO THE FUTURE OF THE OLD SCHOOL!!!!!
